You don't need your mail reader to be extended.

I do IMAP over SSH as described here:

    http://www.cskk.ezoshosting.com/cs/css/ssh.html#rnc__remote_netcat

In short, I bring up a local interface (lo:1, lo:2, etc) for each remote
site whose services I desire via ssh and establish tcpio/ssh/netcat
tunnels to each service at boot.

Then connecting to the imap port on my "local.zip" interface tunnels via ssh
to zip and connects to their IMAP service.

in this way _no_ mail reader needs extending because each remote service is
apparently a local ordinary service.

I find it extremely convenient.
